MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW 

and 
RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES 



Uneven distribution of receipts et midwest 
markets caused considerable variation in the 
week's price trends on slaughter steers and 
heifers. At several points steer and heifer 
marketings were fairly liberal and the general 
trend for steers was steady to 250 higher with 
upturns in the dressed trade a bullish factor. 
At Chicago, steer receipts were the smallest 
since April due to the non-sleughtering kosher 
holidays and prices advanced 500-Cl.OO. Heifers 
were generally steady to 500 lower at most 
markets, the principal exception at Chicago 
25-750 higher. Slaughter cows were largely 
25-750 higher. Stockers and feeders were 
largely steady. Hog prices closed mainly 25- 
500 higher. Spring slaughter lambs were 
generally steady to 250 higher. 

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES - Price trends 
on slaughter steers and heifers were very 
uneven at midwest markets as receipts varied 
considerably from normal at several centers. 
At Chicago, steer marketings were the smallest 
since April and steers advanced 5O0-$1.OO. At 
most other points steers and particularly 
heifers were fairly liberal, but even so, 
prices held up well under the influence of 
higher dressed beef. Steers sold steady to 500 
higher at other eastern Corn Belt centers and 
at Omaha »with prices fully steady for the week 
at Sioux City and Sioux Falls. However, the 
trend on steers was steady to 250 lower at 
Kansas City, St. Paul and St. Joseph. Slaughter 
heifers were steady to 500 lower in the western 
part of the area, but 25-750 higher at Chicago 
and steady to 250 higher at St. Louis and 
Indianapolis. Price changes on cows and bulls 
were toward higher levels, cows finishing the 
week steady to fl.00 higher, mostly 25-750 
up with bulls steady to 500 higher. Vealers 
held about steady in St. Paul and St. Louis. 
The percentage of stockers and feeders in the 
12 market cattle receipts was about the same as 
the previous week, ranging up to nearly 50 per- 
cent at some Missouri River markets. From the 
broad viewpoint, slaughter steers and heifers 
were as usual most numerous with the percentage 
of steers decreased somewhat as the result of 
non-slaughtering kosher holidays. 

Prime steers reached $26.00 in Chicago, 
the price paid for eight loads weighing 1150- 
130Q?. A few high-Choice 985# steer yearlings 
brought $25.25 in St. Louis. At other points 
several loads high-Choice and Prime $24.00- 
24.60, load $24.75 at St. Joseph. At Missouri 
River points Choice steers bulked at $23.00- 
24.00, mixed Choice and Prime 1600?/ steers 
$22.25 in Omaha. Choice 900-1450// steers 
bulked late at $24.00-25.50 in Chicago. Good 
steers sold from $21.75-24.00. A short load 
mostly Prime 1018?/ heifers in Chicago $24.50. 
At most markets Choice heifers bulked at $22.00- 



23.75 with Good largely $21.00-22.50. Utility 
and Commercial cows $14.00-17.00, mainly 
$14. 50-16. 50, Canner and Cutter cows $12.00- 
15.50, mostly $13.00-15.00. 

ST0CKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES - 
Marketings of stocker and feeder cattle and 
calves showed small seasonal expansion but con- 
tinued to fall short of the weekly numbers 
marketed during the month of September in many 
previous years. Favorable late summer and 
early fall weather conditions have permitted 
many growers and graziers to defer marketing 
plans until a later than normal date and in 
addition range contracting has been very exten- 
sive. Yearling and two-year-old steers contin- 
ued to make up a large percent of supplies. 
However, there was a slight increase in calf 
numbers and some expansion in the number of 
heifers. The percentage of Choice offerings 
was seasonally increased but even so a sizeable 
share of the receipts consisted of Medium and 
Good grades. The trade, although somewhat un- 
even, generally was fairly active with prices 
for the most part maintained on a steady basis. 

Bulk Good and Choice 800-105Q? feeder 
steers sold from £22. 00-24. 00, limited number Good 
1000-1050-/ $21.40-21.50. Two-loads Choice 835-

Good steers sold down to $22.00 but on the 
other hand few loads Choice and mixed Choice 
and Fancy 600-650// brought $27.00-27.50. Choice 
671'/ cashed at $27.05 and two-loads 513-575#

$14.00-16.75. 

HOGS - Terminal Markets - A drop of 11 per- 
cent in the hog marketings at the 12 markets as 
compared with the preceding week proved enough 
of a bullish factor to offset declines on most 
wholesale pork cuts. The consist of hogs was 
not much changed from recent weeks, the bulk 
being barrows and gilts weighing 190-260# . 
Advances on barrows and gilts usually ranged 
from 250 to 500. Sows also were generally 25- 
500 higher, extremes up 750. Shippers were 
quite aggressive at most of the markets, taking 
up to 46 percent of supplies at Kansas City 
and 42 percent at St. Joseph. 

On Friday, most U. S. No. 1-3, 190-260# 
barrows and gilts sold at $18.00-18.50, with

some sales at 017.75 at Sioux City, and upward 
to |18.7S at Chicago and St. Louis. No. 1-2, 
190-240$ $16.50-19.00. Narrow price spreads 
were the rule, a 25 £ range taking bulk of the 
hogs on Friday at Kansas City, and St. Paul.

400-550? f 14. 75-16. 25.

130-160$ weights brought 015.50-16. 00, at St. 
Paul, and $15. 50-16. 50 at Sioux City. 

HOGS - Receipts in the Interior Iowa- 
Southern Minnesota area totaled around 324,000 
head, a decrease of 4 percent from the preced- 
ing week and of 2 percent when compared with a 
year earlier. Sows comprised about 9 percent 
of the supply. Marketing was moderate early in 
the period and prices advanced under good de- 
mand. Much of the early advance was erased 
later as selling expanded. Barrows and gilts 
were mainly steady to 150 higher for the week, 
sows mostly 10-15 £ higher. On Friday, mixed

SHEEP AND IAMBS - Receipts at the 12 termi- 
nals totaled 126,000 head, little changed from 
a week earlier but 22 percent more than last 
year. Wooled spring slaughter lambs comprised 
the bulk. Shorn lambs were quite limited at 
most terminals but made up 25 percent of the run 
at Fort Worth. Feeder lambs comprised 30-35 
percent of receipts at some prominent feeder 
lamb centers. Demand was fairly good for the 
moderately broad supply and prices at most 
markets were steady to 250 higher for the week 
with sales 25-50* higher at Denver. Exceptions 
to this were declines of 25 £ at Omaha and 25- 
500 at St. Joseph. Slaughter ewes were mainly 
steady. Feeder lambs were weak to 500 lower at 
Sioux Falls and Sioux City but strong to 500 
higher at Omaha and 25-500 up at Denver.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS 



LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW 

EASTERN SEABOARD - Choice and Prime eteer 
carcase priceo were 50/ lower early in the week 
at New York, however, the trend waa steady at 
the close. Good steer beef sold strong to 50/ 
up. At the other market areas along the Eastern 
Seaboard, steer beef prices were steady to $1.00 
higher. Cow beef sold steady to 50/ up. At 
Philadelphia lamb was $2.00 lower while the trend 
was mainly steady to 50/ lower at other centers. 
7eal prices declined mostly $1.00 at New York 
while upturns of $1.00 were made at Philadelphia. 
At Washington and Baltimore veal prices held 
steady. Pork loins were mainly $2.00 and $3.00 
higher, however, at Philadelphia loins were 
steady to $2.00 lower. Boston butts and spare- 
ribs were largely $1.00 lower; fresh skinned 
hams strong to mostly $1.00 higher. 

Choice and Prime kosher steer forequarters 
were mostly 50/ higher; lamb steady to strong; 
veal and calf steady. Buyer activity was brisk 
for steer beef and lamb while demand was only 
fair for veal and calf during the week when the 
Jewish holiday was observed. 

Receipts were fully normal in most instances. 
Trading was moderately active for steer carcasses 
and cuts with demand good. At New York, whole- 
salers readily unloaded cars of steer beef in 
order to fill commitments made on arm chucks 
which were mainly sold to chain accounts. Outlet 
was also good for cow beef. At most centers the 
veal trade was only moderately active, and at 
New York difficulty was encountered in moving 
foresaddles through processing channels. Demand 
was fair for lamb carcasses. Trading was rather 
slow on lamb cuts at New York as hindsaddles sold 
promptly, but foresaddles were in poor demand. 
Trading was brisk on pork loins and other pork 
cuts moved fairly well. Clearances were rather 
good. 

CHICAGO - Steer and heifer beef sold strong 
to 50/ higher, veal and lamb steady. Pork loins 
declined early but sharp upturns late left prices 
$1.50 higher for the week. Boston butts and 
spareribs were $2.00-4.00 lower for the week. 

Beef, veal and spring lamb supplies were 
adeouate to meet demand. Pork loins were in good 
demand and clearances were fairly complete late 
in the week. 

Carcass beef trade was moderately active with 
the best local action centering on heifer beef. 
Bulk of the movement at wholesale levels was on 
the primal cuts. Squarecut chucks and ribs were 
in good demand while loins were a little slow 
throughout the week. Rounds found good clearance 
at steady prices. Veal trade was moderately 
active with best activity on the limited supply 
of Choice and Prime. The lamb trade was moder- 
ately active with all cuts in good demand. Pork 
loins were higher each day after Monday. 



PACIFIC COAST - Steer beef sold steady to 
50/ higher in the Northwest and mostly steady 
in California with some sales 50/ higher at 
San Francisco. Prices on cow beef were largely 
steady, instances 50/ higher in California. 
Calf and veal prices were very uneven, but 
mostly steady. Spring lamb sold mainly steady, 
however, volume sales in the Seattle area 
were off 50/. Prices on most fresh pork cuts 
were $1.00-2.00 lower, with most decline on 
loins and spareribs, although loins in Los 
Angeles were $1.00 higher. 

Late week demand for bacon was narrow 
following a broad outlet early, and some of 
the early price advance was erased. Closing 
prices on bacon in San Francisco were $1.00- 
2.00 higher, other points mostly steady with 
some late sales $4.00 lower in the Northwest. 
Other smoked pork products sold steady. 

The normal supply of most meats was 
fairly well balanced with demand. However, 
Standard and Good eteer beef fell short of 
demand at Los Angeles and cow beef was a 
little short in the San Francisco area. 

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW 

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORE AND 
PHILADELPHIA - Supplies of carlot dressed 
beef were slightly increased from the previous 
week. Demand for beef was narrow early in 
the week and trading slow with many whole- 
sale establishments observing the Jewish 
holiday Wednesday. After midweek, demand 
Improved and trading was moderately active. 

Late sales of steer beef were 25/ to 
$1.00 higher, a large share fully 50/ higher 
at most centers with the most advance center- 
ing on Choice over 800#. At Chicago, prices 
were strong to 25/ higher. Heifer beef sold 
50/ to $1.00 higher, mostly 50-75/ up. Cow 
beef was mainly 50/ to $1.00 higher, with the 
advance $1.00-1.50 at Omaha. At some centers, 
supplies of cow beef were too limited to fill 
existing demand. 

Beef supplies were generally well cleared 
at midwest shipping points. 

Carcass spring lamb moved in a moderately 
active trade with prices generally steady at 
most centers and steady to 50<# higher at 
Denver. Clearance was good. 

Supplies of pork products were normal. 
Demand was good for pork loins and an active 
trade developed with closing prices mostly 
$3.00-6.00 higher for the week. Pork butts 
were $1.50-2.50 lower and fresh hams were 
50-75/ lower at Omaha. Normal supplies of 
pork carcasses were steady to strong at New 
York and 25-50/ lower at Philadelphia.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW 



Trading on all wools was extremely 
slow at Boston. Demand was only fair for 
the moderate supplies. 

A lower trend on foreign wools and 
rather sizable declines in the futures 
market were underlying factors to the slow 
trade at Boston. Slowness was also influ- 
enced to some degree by religious ob- 
servances again this week. 

Prices for domestic wools were un- 
changed. Most completed sales this week 
were on fleece wools. 

Woolen wools were very slow and some 
mills were operating less than full 
schedule. 

Noils moved on a slow unchanged basis, 
but offerings from Bradford were scant and 
generally quoted 20 to 30 over domestic 
noils . 

Cabled reports from Australia showed 
fair activity with all interests operating. 
Prices declined around 1 to 20. Approxi- 
mately 38,000 bales were offered at Fre- 
mantle and quoted fully 10 under close at 
that market August 31. Sydney reported a 
fully 10 lower market and there were Easier 
tendencies at Melbourne for merinos and 
crossbreds. New Zealand and South Africa 
remained quiet and with very little re- 
ported in way of activity for South America 
but carpet wools quoted firm. 

Fleece Wools - Graded 64s and finer 
good French combing and bulk staple $1.28, 
shorn fine French combing and clothing 
$1.10-1.11, half-blood good French combing 
and staple $1.16, three-eighths at $1.06- 
1.08 and quarter-blood $1.06. 

Sales of territory wools were limited. 

Mohair - Situation little changed from 
recent past weeks with trading slow, prices 
steady but strong price resistance. 

Foreign Wools - Spot turnover was only 
fair. Interest and inquiry was moderately 
broad but limited spot supplies restricted 
volume. Prices at Boston were about steady 
and a large share of current business was 
on small lots with some clean up trans- 
actions. Cape wools were a shade easier 
and certain wools in the Dominion markets 
firm with easiness on others. Cabled re- 
ports at week's end follow with combing 
wools converted to clean U. S. oil-combed 
yields and short wools to scouring yields, 
in bond.

Carpet Wools - Prices in primary 
markets and Boston were strong. Liver- 
pool sale late last week showed oc- 
casional lots super white wools around 
5 percent higher. New Zealand offer- 
ings were firm with carpet wools from 
second shearing quoted 74^-0. Crutch- 
ings at 69-700 for 702/3. Buenos 
Aires shippers offered March wools at 
72-730 and November clip 78-790, pale 
yellow Pakistanian 66^0 clean wool 
fibers cost and freight U. S. Port for 
shipment.
